Visiting Europe for the first time

Jump to last reply

I'm visiting Europe in early October for the first time. Traveling from the US (October 1st-14th).

A friend and I are flying into London and arriving on the morning of October 1st and leaving Europe from Paris on Sunday, October 14th.

We are staying at an apartment in London and using that is base location for the trip.

Other than London and Paris, I would like to get some recommendations on easy and cost efficient trips. We are both around the age of 30, males and looking to experience the culture, nightlife and art of as many cities as possible during the trip. Other interests include dancing, beer tasting, musical history, museums, and shopping for interesting/funky things, but since this is my first trip, I would also like to do most of the classic tourist spots as well.

Here is what I have so far:

1. London
2. Possibly Brighton...
3. Possibly Scotland...
4. Possibly Belgium and/or Amsterdam...

I'm really trying to figure out what works best logically and what will require significant travel time.

Any tips/guidance/recommendations is much appreciated! Thanks!
